    I'll start:
    Un-retire - get off butt and go back to work and share my skills.
    Better Diet
    More exercise - within my limits
    Throw away a ton of old PC parts (recycle responsibly) - cases, etc and stop pack ratting so much.

    Paint and decorate my living space differently. New looks make new attitudes.

    Well that list should take the next 16 months.

    1. Finish high school with honors (80% or higher average overall for the year) done it from grade 8 until now, so 1 more semester and I'm golden.. As of now my grade 12 average is around a 87, but it'll go down because I have math next semester lol...

    2. Learn how to play my guitar... Had it for almost a week and progress is coming slowly, don't plan on stopping, just hoping to continue practicing regularly.

    3. Get accepted into university of choice... In my case: Ryerson for televesion and radio or a film / broadcasting program

    4. Find a real part-time job

    5. Get my g2 drivers license.

    6. Lose a bit of weight... I'm gettin chubby :(

    Think that's my major stuff

    2. Earn motorcycle driving license.
    3. Have better sleeping habits.

    Finish stuff to 100% completion, or at least a workable 1.0 state.

    And either meet more people around here or leave. Preferably the latter, especially as there doesn't seem to be anyone nearby anyways. I've hated this location since we moved here, though I've been generally unhappy since I left for college 2.5 years ago, and about 1% better since leaving 1.5 years ago (I still take the top search result for "babson sucks" :D) but this area is just devoid of anything worthwhile.

    I dropped all I could think of during countdown last night as I realized that all resolutions, wishes, budget, hopes, and plans, are nothing but hokum.
